What should I smoke?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have some family from out of town visiting. We will be having a dinner at my house on Friday. It will be around 12 people.

The weather should be...
Thursday: Rain/snow, high 33, low 22, wind 7-11 mph, 30% precip.
Friday: Partly cloudy, high 35, low 26, wind 5-6 mph, 20% precip.

I will be using chargriller with side firebox, controlled by my stoker. I will seal the chargriller with heavy duty foil, and wrap it with welding blankets. That should make this possible in the cold. I did 2 turkeys on thanksgiving in below zero temperatures. I have a covered patio so I'm not worried about the rain/snow either.

What should I smoke?

A few butts are alwasy nice to do when you might have temp problems and also taste great.

Butts, ribs, ABT's, chickens, beans are all good things to smoke.

I'm thinking ribs, abt's, beans, & coleslaw. That way you don't have to worry when it will be done. You can have a pretty good estimate when dinner will be ready. You can serve the abt's a couple of hours before the ribs will be done for an appetizer.

Yep yep! Or if you wanted to go cheaper than ribs you can do some whole chickens. At higher temps like 275 to 325 they only take a few hours usually. I just made the best chicken salad I've ever tasted this past weekend for my wedding. Everything is better smoked. Good luck boss.
